The study of Shakespeare and performance has grown rapidly in recent years, and now encompasses the examination of different periods, cultures, and media. This special issue of Shakespeare Quarterly solicits submissions examining why we study performance and how we study performance. What are the important issues facing the study of Shakespeare and performance today? How might such study differ from the study of other categories of performance? How might it differ from other studies of Shakespeare?

"We must more than ever stand on the side of human rights. We need human rights. We are in need of them and they are in need, for there is always a lack, a shortfall, a falling short, an insufficiency; human rights are never sufficient." (Jacques Derrida, Philosophy in a Time of Terror)

If human rights are insufficient yet necessary, we must then ask what to do with "rights." This conference will explore historical and theoretical definitions, constructions, and performative notions of rights. How do texts challenge predominant conceptual narratives of rights? In what ways does literature explore notions of rights outside of the juridical realm? Can we have a discourse on rights that exceeds the anthropomorphic field?
